OPISTHOBRANCH NEWSLETTER 14(1 ):2. 

From Alan Kuzirian: "Thank you for 
sending the latest issue of ON. It was 
really nice to read and see what people 
are up to again. I have been sort of out 
of touch lately since I began my residence 
here in the Lab of Biophysics. I am 
working here doing neural anatomy and 
ultrastructure. We use Hermissenda as our 
principal research animal (Mike Morris 
sends us about 100/week) so I am still 
working on nudibranchs. The lab is really 
nicely set up with several 
electrophysiologists, a behaviorist, a 
biochemist, a mariculturist, as well as 
myself (morphologist ) and we are all 
working on the many aspects of the 
cellular basis of associative learning. In 
between times, which are really hard to 
find unfortunately, I still work on the 
coryphellids. Gary McDonald and I are 
currently putting together a MS describing 
a new species from Elkhorn Slough. If 
things go well, I should have it pretty well 
together by the end of January. 

In October I spent a week in Los Angeles 
attending the Annual Meeting of the Society 
for Neuroscien-ce, and had called Dave 
Behrens and tried Gary, but couldn't get 
together with either. 1 wish I had known 
you were so close " 



Steve Long & Bobbie Sahner travelled to 
Baywood Park on the 19th of February and 
met Dave Behrens, Mike Haberiand, Bob 
Henderson, and others. Several people 
collected Cave Landing and found about 10 
species. That night we were treated to a 
slide show of Vancouver Island and L.A. 
Bay fauna along with Pacific Coast branch 
slides. Sunday, Dave Behrens and company 
sighted 27 species of branchs diving in 
Morro Bay. That must be a record for a 
dive there. 

Don Cadien has been doing quite a bit of 
field work lately for M.B.C. Don's wife, 
Kathy Cadien is very pregnant. 
Congratulations Kathy! 

From Michael T. Ghiselin: "Since 
relocating here I have been awarded a 
MacArtur Prize Fellowship — I am not sure 
how much weight my work on opisthobranchs 
had in the decision to give me the prize, 
but I'd like to think it helped. 

Although I am not currently working on 
opisthobranchs, I often refer to them in my 
publications on reproduction. The next of 
these v;ill be a chapter on evolutionary 
aspects of reproduction, in Giese & 
Pearse's Treatise. I trust you know the 
work and Bob Beeman's chapter. From time 
to time I see Hans Bertsch, and I 
correspond with Terry Gosliner -- both 
former students. Hans and I may do some 
field work together." 



Ron Velarde is still at Long Beach State 
and teaching at Cerritos College. 

From Dave Mulliner: "In November, Ron 
McPeak, myself and 3 other people went to 
Punta Ascuncion. There was 85 miles of 
dirt road after we left the main road below 
Guerrero Negro. TJiere were some sea 
mounts about five miles off shore. We dove 
these pinnacles and also the kelp beds 
along the coast. The weather was excellent 
and the fishing was good. 

This is a transition zone between 
northern and southern species, so it isn't 
really a good habitat for molluscs, we 
found quite a variety but not many of any 
species. Among the branchs collected was 
a Coryphellina sp. first collected by Lance 
from L.A. Bay. Flabellinopsis iodinea was 
the most common and very large. Both 
Aplysia californica and vaccaria, Diaulula 
sandiegensis, Spurilla oliviae and Phidiana 
pugnax were taken. 

We would like to go down there again but 
not launching and loading a boat from 
shore through the sur'f. 

1 will be retiring in July of this year, 
then maybe 1 can get more branching in." 

From Gordon Robilliard: "Recently I have 
not been able to do much with 
opisthobranchs. I reviewed Behrens and 
Nybakken/McDonald 's books on 
opisthobranchs plus a few manuscripts. I 
have relatively little tim.e to do any 
research or prepare any of the numerous 
papers that 1 have sitting around. I have 
been doing some diving in the Beaufort Sea 
of Alaska and have found some of the 
opisthobranch species that have been 
listed by others. There is some potential 
for research on them, although I think it 
will be difficult as they seem to be few 
and far between." 

The 19b1 California Fish Commission 
Photo Contest saw another branch to the 
awards circle. Dan Gotshall won a 3rd 
place (one of 4 awards Dan took) in the 
invertebrate category with a photo of 
Flabellinopsis iodinea. Congratulations to 
Dan! 

Steve Long stayed with Pete & Sue 
Oringer in Eureka, California for several 
days and with Sandra Millen in Vancouver, 
B.C., Canada, for several days during early 
March. Collected a bit in Crescent City, 
California with no luck. Also collected 
with Sandra in Vancouver and two places in 
Victoria. Found four species in Vancouver 
and two in Victoria. Sandra's mother, Mrs. 
Millen, provided food and lodging for us 
while we were in Victoria. She was very 
nice. Sven Donaldson was very kind to us 
while in Vancouver. I also talked with Ron 
Long while in Vancouver and Larry Andrews 
while in Seattle.

READER FORUM 



From Malcom Edmunds: "Some years ago I seem to 
recall that ON made a policy decision uiat original 
papers would not be published in ON. In other words 
printing of ideas, views and range extensions may 
well be of value to colleagues but does not constitute 
a scientific publication. Recently this policy 
appears to have changed. If so, I for one regret it, 
for two reasons. First because a reputable 
scientific journal will only publish papers that have 
been refereed and which (hopefully) reach an 
appropriate standard; and second because papers in 
scientific journals reach a large number of 
nbraries and abstracting centres so that the papers 
there enter the realm of scientific literature. This 
is not true for the majority of professional 
newsletters. Having said this, I can see the 
advantage of printing in ON summaries of some 
papers, or even entire short papers if these wore 
published in an obscure journal, but there could be 
copyright problems. 

By all means put this in ON if you wish, though I 
would not be surprised if I am in a minority with this 
view!" 

From the Editor: "Material which is intended as a 
publication is identified as such with a title, an 
author, and is in the section for 'PAPERS'. In 
addition this material is cited in a subsequent issue 
of the Opisthobranch Newsletter as a paper. This 
material is sent to referees prior to publication 
although 1 must take responsibility and apologize for 
not allowing sufficient time to have this properly 
done in all cases. Comments on how to improve this 
situation are welcomed!"

ON Citation Number to ON Volume-lssue-Page Index. 

Prepared by 

Mike Haberland 

P.O. Box 117 

Avila Beach, CA 93424 

The basic listing of Opisthobranch Newsletter 
citation numbers keyed to Opisthobranch Newsletter 

volume, issue, and page number was prepared by Mike 
Haberland. Roberta Reinhard keyed this listing into 
the word processor and added numerous cross-checks 
and corrections from Steve Long's basic card files. 
Steve decided to add the numbers found in Dr. Henry 
Russell's Index Nudibranchia to put all of the 
information in one place and allow further cross- 
referencing for currently accepted citations. 

In the list, "IN" refers to Index Nudibranchia with 
the page number following. All of Dr. Russell's 
citation numbers which have alpha suffixes have been 
recited in the Opisthobranch Newsletter with new 
numbers. Leading zeros are used so that citation 
numbers will not be confused with citation years. 

As with all such lists, errors are certain to have 
crept in. Please notify us of any found so that we 
may make corrections for further editions. Since 
Lamellarians, Pyramidellids, and Titiscanians were 
cited for many years we need to delete their 
citations. Please tell us of any citation numbers 
known to have no references to true Opisthobranchs.
